| December 8, 2015

On Nov. 30, police were notified that there had been a shooting at 901 Place, an off-campus apartment complex located close to UNC Charlotte.

They were informed that it was sparked by a highway altercation at about 4:00 p.m. in the 800 block of Pavillion Boulevard.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said they were unable to locate the victim at the time of the call, but were notified that a woman named Dejanae Gilliam drove herself to Carolina’s Medical Center with serious injuries.

She was listed in critical condition Tuesday morning and police have not made any arrests in the case.

Initially, officers said the shooting happened in the 900 block of Forty Niner Avenue. Since then, they have stated that the incident was not related to nearby UNC Charlotte. It is located 2 miles from the university.

The shooting is one of more than 50 serious crimes within a 1-mile radius from University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

The shooting at 901 Place was the second shooting in two days to occur at an off-campus apartment. The first incident happened near University House apartments, where a student was shot and rushed to the hospital.
